Jim Stavis was the first person to ever survive a triple organ transplant. 

When he was 17, he was told he'd be lucky to live past his 50th birthday. At that time, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Doctors expected him to be plagued by kidney and heart disease, blindness and amputation before succumbing to diabetes at a young age.

He recently celebrated his 65th birthday.

So what's the secret to his ability to grow a successful steel company (which at its peak was generating over $25 million) while raising a family and stay resilient in the face of incredible adversity?

In his new book 'When Hope is Your Only Option' and award-winning documentary 'Source of Hope,’ Jim reveals the incredible secret to his survival.

During this interview, Jim provides a three-step plan to overcome adversity, which he calls Endure, Hope, and Prevail. Each has its own blueprint and he shares how to deal with a negative set of health circumstances and how he built a successful business and life.

He also shares about how he’s dealt with stress in his life and in business.
